I bought grape seed oil this morning, it’s made in Napa County, neighboring Sonoma County where I grew up. I was surprised that it was inexpensive, organic grapeseed oil for either the same price or cheaper than I regularly play for nonorganic olive oil.
Mostly I just want it for muffins or when I’m out of butter. I don’t really like butter in my muffins, they come out heavier than I like. I’m pretty sure Sally Fallon isn’t a fan of grape seed oil, but I wanted to see what I could find out about how it compares to other plant-based oils.
Kelly the Kitchen Kop did the same research here
In the comments in her post someone actually talks about the cold-pressed oil that I bought, which hopefully means that it’s clear from the carcinogens usually used to process the oil. Looks like coconut oil is (as I expected) a better choice. I still need to figure out and put in my first order to Azure Standard, since good quality coconut oil in town is prohibitively expensive.
